Correcting Jesus’s parables

The worst thing about the Parable of the Sheep and the Goats  – Matthew 25 31-45 is that it has often been misused by socialists and communists ( and even Tories in Britain)  to justify caring for people in need rather than telling them to get a job at sub-economic wages.

To remedy this those from the Wholesome Americans for New Knowledge in Education and Religion Society have carefully revised the translation of the parable of the sheep and the goats.

Sadly some prefer to keep the old, inaccurate translation as in this poster, which the above mentioned society advise you to abhor.

I am sure all my readers know which one is closer to what Jesus intended.

Happy Christmas.

Jesus also said; “I did not come to be served but to serve.”

      Liberals of course make their own
      “god “. They then ,judge the scriptures that the true God has revealed himself in, through the lens of their created god.
      Jesus Christ is the lens through which we interpret scripture .

      Jesus Christ is revealed throughout scripture – as God and saviour – culminating inThe incarnation .He in fact ,said to the Pharisees:

      ” – You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me,
      John 5:39

      An honest study of the scriptures will reveal Christ ,
